    It’s important to support Jeffco Schools
    Editor:
    Jeffco Generations is an appropriate name for Jeffco Public Schools’ vision. In the course of my life, I have been a Jeffco student, teacher, principal and now proud school board member.
    This November, a yes on 5A and 5B helps secure quality education today and for generations to come.

    Hold off on development in Rooney Valley
    Editor:
    A letter to the Jeffco commissioners:
    The finality and tragedy of the Three Dinos and their plans for  
    development continues to loom ever closer. How reprehensible for current policies to allow the destruction of this unique and intrinsically valuable site. It will stand in perpetuity, as the ruling by our current county commissioners.

    Support public education by voting for Amendment 73, 5A/B
    Editor:
    As a former financial analyst, business executive, and public school teacher and principal, I am blessed with multiple perspectives on school funding.  
    Before us are Colorado Amendment 73 and Jeffco Ballot Questions 5A and 5B, which are asking for more funding for public schools.

    Will taxes go to teacher pay?
    Editor:
    Letter-writer Maureen Sielaff made a good point in The Courier, writing that she would be the “first in line to say Jeffco’s newest teachers deserve a raise,” but later she poses the inevitable question: “So where is all that new money going?”

    Jeffco asks for another $33 million in local funding
    Editor:
    I would be the first in line to say Jeffco’s newest teachers deserve a raise. With sky rocking cost of housing and how hard teachers work they deserved to be well paid.

    Social-media post doesn’t represent the Jeffco GOP
    Editor:
    Sal Christ wrote an article about an unfortunate post on the Facebook page of the Jefferson County Republican Party.  I am not the author of the post, but I am the one who deleted it off of our page as soon as I found out about it because I considered it to be inappropriate and offensive.

    ‘Fixing Our Damn Roads’ a good idea
    Editor:
    Regarding Greg Romberg’s commentary last week on the “Fix Our Damn Roads” initiative and his opposition to it, I have an opposing opinion.

    Columnists should engage all readers
    Editor:
    I’ve previously written about how John Riddell is a poor columnist and how we subscribers deserve better.
     In John’s recent column, he provides a reasonable and somewhat thoughtful description of the motivation and courage of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Rather than leave the column at that, he ineffectively tries to connect their patriotism to some of the political and cultural issues of today.

    There’s nothing wrong with political system
    Editor:
    Re: “What’s wrong with our political system” by Jim Rohrer, July 5, 2018
    I would like to answer Jim Rohrer’s rhetorical question that heads his editorial column: There is nothing wrong with our political system.

    Progressives believe in equal opportunity
    Editor:
    It must be awfully nice to be born a couple of rungs up the advantage ladder and not even know it. Mr. Riddell talks about the veterans of D-Day and pleads for respect for them, and as the daughter of these men, I appreciate that. The stories we heard were of unbelievable terror, pain and deprivation.
